Lord, Where's My Calling?
Some people seem to find their calling with ease - opportunity nearly knocking a hole through their door. But what about the rest of us?
We've all been told it's out there. Our special calling, that is. Books and programs abound, telling us how amazing our Christian life will be once we find it. Yet after years of scouring books, taking countless surveys, and begging God to reveal the divinely dictated action plan you just knew would someday come, perhaps you still don't have a clue about what your big calling is.
If you have ever thought, “Maybe I’ve failed, or perhaps I’ve blinked one too many ties and missed my change to do something amazing for God,” then this book is for you.
If you have ever feared that “special callings are only for special people and that God has destined you for a mundane life,” then this book is for you.
When author Teasi Cannon had nearly lost hope, God began a lifesaving redirect in her life that started with a tractor ride and a dictionary where she learned that calling is not what she had always presumed or what many of us have been taught.
What she discovered was a greater reason for getting out of bed each morning, and a truth that opens the door to a calling that she had access to all along.
A respected speaker, women’s ministry leader and writer, Teasi delivers an inspiring message—one of healing, true freedom, and solid biblical empowerment.
Her passion: Teasi’s desire to strengthen her personal understanding—coupled with a passion to share the hope that God’s Word can bring to even the messiest life—led her to obtain a Master’s degree in Pastoral Counseling. Armed with scripture, humor, and the courage to be transparent, Teasi loves to impart this biblical Truth to God’s people: Our first love, Father God, gazes on each of us with adoration and has hand-crafted a life of personal victory and abundance for any who choose to receive it.
Her name: In 1968, a beautiful, young hippie gal wanted her daughter to have a unique name…so she made one up. “Teasi” (pronounced Tee See) is what she came up with. While she’s never been able to find her name on a key chain or a coffee mug, she does enjoy hearing the many ways people reinvent her name daily.
Her family: Teasi lives south of Nashville, Tennessee with her husband and best friend Bill. They have three amazing children: a beautiful daughter who is grown and living her “big-girl life,” and two handsome teen men-in-training. All three Cannon kids are talented musicians (along with other amazing skills) which makes for a raucous house at times. Hanging on a wall in their home is a plaque which says it best, “We may not have it all together, but together we have it all.”
